Also, the usual attention span is no more than 4-6 minutes at one go. While you may be worried at times about your chil getting lost and loosing concentration, you also jeed to understand what is your child thinking or observing at wuch points. Engage in a conversation from time to timw to understand if he's struggling to understand the concept or he's interpretig with a few intra-personal thoughts. Knowing this would help you address the real need for your child and improve his grasp. Here are a few quick tips to deal with this, 1.
